    In my humble opinion recessed spots belong nowhere apart from utility rooms or basements. A bedroom should be a welcoming place with a pleasant ambience. (That's assuming you won't be carrying out interrogations in there).

    I used to work at a big national museum, and for the refurbishment of one of their biggest galleries we looked at marmoleum as an option. We got hold of some 2mX2m samples of the stuff, which we then decided against, and so they needed to be disposed of... They ended up as temporary floor coverings in my kitchen for about a year. We liked it enough to get some properly installed in the bathroom!
    I wouldn't be surprised if they do high traffic versions for commercial use and then a more domestic type, but either way I don't think you'd need to really worry about taking shoes off.
    The material itself is very durable, and all natural - the smell of the linseed is glorious.

    We have Forbo marmoleum in our bathroom - it is indeed lovely stuff. Not cheap though (unlike 'lino'), and your floor needs to be properly flat to install it on, so you may need to have a ply subfloor laid first.

    These guys did a lovely job of our staircase / under stairs storage.

    I have 2x GP5000 28c available if that works.
    One was fitted but not used, and the other has maybe 10 miles use.
    £50?

    Will I suffer catastrophic wheel explosion if I use a 23-28c inner tube in a 32c tire?

    I've got a 2013 Condor Pista soon to be for sale, complete bike with 58cm frame. Bought new from the shop where they measured me up for it - I'm also 6'3". PM if interested and I can expand on spec etc.

    If anyone is keen on some relatively unused narrow PDW guards (30mm) I have a set that is taking up valuable space. I trimmed the stays a fair bit as I had fitted them on a bike without eyelets, but you can buy replacements for £20.
    I'd be after £20 for the guards.
